Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi: I want to be a machine

This exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern 2) examines Warhol’s and Paolozzi’s work, showing how they captured images from photography and advertisements.

Warhol traced his images while Paolozzi used collage, until they both turned to screenprinting in the early 1960s to transform photographs into prints. The exhibition includes rarely seen drawings by Warhol from the 1950s, as well as his famous multi-coloured prints of Marilyn Monroe and a group of recently acquired ‘stitched’ photographs.

Works by Paolozzi include some of his early proto-Pop collages from the early 1950s and his kaleidoscopically-coloured prints from the 60s and 70s.
